Bulverhythe Housing Development
The council is working on a proposal to build 192 new homes off of Bexhill Road as shown below.
Update - March 2021
The council is continuing to progress its planning application to build 192 new homes at Bulverhythe. Hastings has a major housing shortage and the council is working hard to deal with this crisis, which impacts many local families. The planning application that the council has submitted sets out our plans to deliver a high quality scheme which will provide a range of housing including a significant number of affordable homes for local families. It's our intention that as many homes as possible will be built using modern methods of construction, which will not only help to reduce the scheme's carbon footprint but also get homes built quickly. Throughout our proposals there's a continued focus on the site's connectivity to the surrounding area and an emphasis on sustainable transport and creating wider benefits to the local community. Please visit our Frequently Asked Questions to find out more.
The challenges of developing this land have been recognised with the grant of nearly £7m from Homes England. This has been provided to help get the site ready to build on, including overcoming the known flood issues.
We appreciate that concerns have been raised and that local residents remain worried about the future use of the land. In advance of submitting our planning application, we carried out a wide range of consultation events to share our proposals and hear the views of local residents and stakeholders. Now that our application has been submitted, we are responding to any concerns through the planning process. Planning is a formal and independent process which is transparent and takes into account the range of all objections received, as well as the application itself.
You can get more detailed information about our plans in the full application - Reference number: HS/FA/20/00966.
Any comments on the application need to be submitted to the council's planning team so they can be reviewed as part of the formal planning process. More information about how to make a comment is available on our planning pages.
